Georgians support ballot questions and referendums

(WJBF) - With over 70% of precincts reporting, Georgians are showing overwhelming support for statewide ballot questions and referendums.  

Out of the ballot questions, "Marsy's Law" is one that is already instituted in some states nationwide.  The law would give victims of violent crime the right to be updated on the outcome and future of their perpetrator's court cases. Over 80% of Georgians casting a ballot support the referendum.

Another widely supported bill, The "Stewardship Bill", creates a trust fund to protect water quality, wildlife habitat and parks.  Almost 85% of Georgians voted in favor of the trust fund, keeping the natural areas of the Peach State natural thanks to state funding.
